Who would enjoy the Hummingbird Necklace?

As a mother myself I would love to receive a gift like this hummingbird necklace on my birthday, mother’s day or as an anniversary present.  We are actually 25 years married this summer which is our silver anniversary (Hint hint Farmer Nick). However from the moment my daughter set eyes on it she wants one too, it is her 16th birthday next month so clearly this is a winner across the age groups.  If you like chunky statement jewellery, this is probably not for you, but if you like understated, dainty and delicate this is perfect.
